Today I’m sharing a Cricut gift card envelope tutorial. You can download the SVG to make your own gift card envelope with your Cricut.

Don’t have a Cricut? I’ve got you covered with a printable gift card envelope template.

Gift cards are one of my favorite things to give (and receive!) However, I find the store gift card envelopes a little boring, so I like to make my own.

These are so easy to make and it’s possible to make a lot in no time at all!

Here’s how I use my Cricut to make gift card holders.

Supplies Needed:

Notes about Supplies:


I used my Cricut Maker for this project, but any cutting machine will work. The exact cut settings will differ for other brands though.

If you don’t have a cutting machine, I have a post for a printable version of this gift card envelope as well.


I used scrapbook paper for this project because it’s available in so many pretty patterns. It’s thick enough to be substantial, but not so thick that it’s hard to work with.

If you use thinner or thinner paper, your cut settings will be different.

Washi Tape

I use washi tape to close the envelopes but you can use regular tape or glue if you want.

Cutting the Paper

  1. Upload the design to Cricut Design Space as usual. screenshot of gift card design in cricut design space
  2. If you need to cut more than one, duplicate the design and fit them in a 12″x12″ space since that’s the size of scrapbook paper. (If your paper is sized differently, fit them into that size.)4 gift card envelope svgs
  3. Click Make It.
  4. Make sure that the designs fit properly on the material size. screenshot of cricut design space
  5. Click continue.
  6. Choose your material. Most scrapbook paper will work with the setting for Heavy Patterned Paper. (If your paper is super lightweight, choose Light Patterned Paper. screenshot of materials settings in cricut design space
  7. Place your scrapbook paper on a LightGrip mat and smooth it to make sure that it sticks to the mat. scrapbook paper on cricut mat
  8. Cut the design.
  9. When the design is cut, don’t unload the mat yet. use the spatula tool to make sure that your design has cut all the way through the paper. If it’s good, unload the mat. If not, send it to cut one more time.

Weeding the Paper

  1. Gently pull the mat from the excess paper. Go slowly to avoid curling the paper. peeling striped paper from blue cricut mat
  2. Use the spatula tool to slowly remove the envelopes from the mat. cricut spatula tool removing paper from mat
  3. If the paper curls, you can gently curl it the other way.

Making the Gift Card Envelope

  1. Gently fold the envelope flaps down. I like to use the edge of a table to help make folds.folding paper on edge of table
  2. Use a bone folder to get a nice crisp fold. folding paper with bone folder
